Bouna Sarr was celebrating progression to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations with Senegal on Wednesday after a 3-1 win over Burkina Faso. The 30-year-old Bayern defender played the full 90 minutes of the semi-final in Yaounde. After a goalless first half, Abdou Diallo (70’) and Idrissa Gueye (76’) put the Lions of Teranga 2-0 up. Ibrahim Blati Toure (82’) got one back to set up a tense finish, but Sadio Mane ensured Senegal were through with three minutes to go.
